Your open source project is up and running – now what? Paris Pittman will walk through some of the practical, tactical work you can do to ensure your community doesn’t just grow, but thrive. Through examples from multiple Google-supported open source communities, you’ll learn how to create “gardeners” that do the hard but essential work that builds and sustains healthy communities.
